The Nozzle X is E3D's new ‘One to rule them all’ nozzle, made from a special alloy of tool steel, it is immensely hard, but also maintains its hardness to high temperatures without softening. An added a layer of hard, slick nickel plating which provides a fantastic balance of cost and wear resistance. The cherry on the top? The NEW WS2 ‘polyphobic’ nano coating, no longer will you find hot molten polymers sticking to your nozzle. This nozzle is compatible with the E3D v6 Volcano Hot End.
Whilst the hardened steel nozzles are ideal for printing abrasive filaments such as ones loaded with Carbon Fibre, the extreme temperatures can cause the steel to temper and soften, ultimately reducing its abrasion resistance. And then there's our plated copper nozzles, able to cope easily with these immense temperatures but lacking the abrasion resistance required to resist Carbon Fibre. This is where the Nozzle X comes in, a nozzle able to withstand crazy temperatures without softening.
By going with a one-piece all-machined construction it is using existing manufacturing processes to create a carefully tuned internal geometry, which provides fantastic flow response and keep the exact same geometry and compatibility as the rest of the E3D ecosystem.
